    Make-Up Day on Presidents’ Day

    Executions on Hold In Pennsylvania

    SCRANTON — No one has been executed in Pennsylvania since Gary Heidnik in 1999. So, statewide, it may seem that a moratorium on the death penalty already exists. The governor’s action Friday only makes it official. However, a moratorium on the death penalty does have an impact on prosecutors in our area where there are at least two ongoing capital cases. Calling Pennsylvania’s death penalty a “flawed system,” Governor Tom Wolf has put a moratorium on executions in order to do […]

    Lackawanna County To Pick Replacement Commissioner

County solicitor Don Frederickson says the Democratic party, then […]

    Bringing Energy Careers to the Classroom

    ARCHBALD — Marcellus Shale sits more than 5,000 feet below Valley View High School in Archbald, but on ground level, junior students had a chance to pick some up and learn about what it does in natural gas production. They also learned about electricity and water use and about how it’s wasted. That lesson really resonated with some students like Kylee Bushta. “Many interesting things about how energy is transported here, and the way we can renew and not waste it,” Bushta […]

    Two Different Demolitions In One Neighborhood

City residents’ main complaint has been that it will be almost a whole week before city crews remove piles of snow along the curbs and in parking spots. The mayor said when it comes to resources, his hands are tied but he’s open to suggestions. […]
